Good Counsel RB Wes Brown will announce choice tonight

Is Maryland about to land its biggest recruit yet this offseason?

That is what some local football observers are speculating as Good Counsel running back Wes Brown, a second-team All-Met, is expected to announce his college choice during Thursday night’s Under Armour All-American Game, which will be broadcast on ESPN.

Brown, who is 6 feet and 200 pounds, has narrowed his choices to Maryland, Vanderbilt, Colorado and Miami, according to former Good Counsel assistant coach Bernie Dancel, with whom Brown lives. Dancel’s son, Zach, a safety, announced Wednesday that he will transfer to Maryland from New Mexico.

Brown missed one game and parts of three others because of a knee injury this past season, but still rushed for 1,382 yards and 22 touchdowns as the Falcons went 12-0 and won their third consecutive Washington Catholic Athletic Conference title. After returning from the injury, he posted five consecutive 100-yard games, totaling 918 yards and 14 touchdowns during the stretch.
